Amy Caruso left the world the incredible gift of her journals that she kept since middle school. She wrote powerfully about whether to begin using substances, her initiation, and the progression of her substance use disorder in the context of school, family, friends, boys, body image, and self-esteem. Amy's mom edited the journals into It's Not Gunna Be an Addiction so readers can reflect on Amy's own words about her choices and six-year struggle with her disease.
